A fugitive who escaped custody in Mississippi is back behind bars after being caught in DeKalb County Monday night.

Delvin Moore was facing felony robbery charges when he took off from the Lowndes County Jail in Columbus, Mississippi in September of 2017. Police say he's responsible for dozens of robberies in metro Atlanta as well.

Authorities say while he was on the run, they tracked him to Alabama and then began noticing a troubling pattern in DeKalb County and Atlanta. They believe he's behind 16 similar robberies since the start of the new year.

He was arrested around 10 a.m. Monday morning by DeKalb County authorities as well as U.S. Marshals.

He's facing 21 charges in DeKalb County alone.
